We first met Rennie at a football camp in early 2015, and he made a huge impression on us as parents, and on our son, Grayson. He coached not only on football skills and technique, but also skills that young athletes require for success off the field. We bought Rennie’s book, “Free Agent,” for Grayson, and reading it impacted us more than we could imagine.
We contacted Rennie this spring because we were worried about some issues with which Grayson was struggling in the classroom that were also beginning to affect his athletic abilities. He plays several sports, and he just wasn’t performing, and didn’t seem to be having fun on the field. Rennie’s process is thorough and professional. He knows exactly how to tap into what makes a student-athlete tick. He met with Grayson at the same gym where he trains, and this alone was so impressive! He spoke at length with Grayson about his own experiences, and what it takes to focus in class, to contribute at home, and to compete on the field. What we love most, though, is his Christ-centered approach. He knows and appreciates God-given talent, and helps young athletes recognize and appreciate the same. He helped Grayson understand the value of hard work , staying humble and grounded, and the importance of never giving up under any circumstances. Rennie assisted Grayson in defining his dream a way that we were unable.
Since his meeting this spring, we’ve seen a change in Grayson. This summer he’s committed to working on his craft every single day in some way. For an eight-year old child, this is unbelievable! He’s respectful, he’s driven, and he’s working hard. His confidence has shot through the roof. Recently Rennie made a follow-up call to Grayson to see how things are going, and this meant the world to us and to Grayson. We’re looking forward to a lifelong relationship of learning with Rennie. He’s truly helping to build a foundation of excellence for Grayson, and seeing is believing that anything is possible when you work hard.
We can’t say enough about our experience with Rennie Curran. If you are looking for a life coach for your student-athlete, look no further. You won’t find a better example of a professional athlete with real-life lessons to share.
